This new IOS version killed my mac, so much so that I am seriously thinking of ditching it for a pc, vowing never to buy an apple again, something I already did with iphones and tablets because of similar bugged releases.

So if you have not yet upgraded, for land's sake don't!

I honestly feel that this is user-error. You tried to install iOS on a PC.

Additionally, you replaced your iPhones and Tablets with PCs. Not that you can't do everything you need on a PC, but a PC just isn't as portable as an iPhone.

Yosemite worked fine for me on my MB Pro. IMHO upgrading a PC from 8 to 8.1 was fine for making the interface look and work better, but I had a load of drivers that needed to be replaced and needed to add numerous updates to do so. So be careful for what you wish for.

I have Apple, Android, and MS devices and by far Apple is the easiest to upgrade. That said, no matter the OS if the programs one uses are old by a few generations then you're going to have compatibility issues.

Not sure how you misinterpreted that...

And I love how the term "PC" has come to mean "A WINDOWS COMPUTER". I know part of that is actually Apples fault but: ALL COMPUTERS, EVEN ONES RUNNING LINUX.... are PC's.


Yeosemite has been problematic for a few but the issue ius hardly widespread. I have 2 Apples I support at work. One is being reformatted as we "speak". The other was fine.

I had to upgrade from 2GB to make Yosemite functional on a 2010 Macbook. While I was at it, threw in a SSD. Cheap upgrades to bring new life to a 4 year old computer.

Of course not. It's just a rant about nothing. OP probably doesn't even own a mac.

It is obvious. Tried to install iOS on his Mac.
Yosemite has nothing to do with this problem.
